Why Businesses Should Consider Social Media Training


22 Sep 2021 | Mentoring

South Coast Social have launched a new promotion to help businesses get more out of social media.

It’s no mystery to most of Silicon South’s readership, but it wasn’t long ago when having a social media presence was often at the bottom of priorities for businesses, but it’s pretty clear how vital it is now and can be the reason why a business gains a competitive edge over competitors.  Even so there are still plenty of companies who, even if they post on social media, are getting little to no engagement.

The company is looking to tap into this market and have developed new messaging to generate interest in their services. They have created some punchy positioning to tap into the lack of confidence of knowledge that many businesses have around social. Here’s an example of how they approaching this:

“…Perhaps you’re worried your social ads aren’t performing as expected or maybe you don’t even know where to start?

Social media is an incredibly powerful tool for businesses – not just for marketing and promotion, but also for reaching potential customers and raising awareness of your brand. More and more businesses are looking to improve their presence on social but they’re not entirely sure how, or it can be a bit overwhelming.

Most of us use some kind of social media in our personal lives, so you’ve already got a basic knowledge of what you engage with as a consumer. Social media training can help you to identify what you already know and sharpen your skills on the things you’re not so confident on.

Here at South Coast Social, we offer bespoke social media training workshops in Bournemouth and London, tailored to you and your brand. Our workshops will provide you with the latest social media tips, tools and tricks. It’s also the perfect opportunity to sit down with a qualified social media professional in a small group and ask the questions you’ve always wanted to ask.

Training can put you ahead of your competitors too – helping you to think about things like a social media strategy and a posting schedule. These will allow you to communicate directly to your ideal customer and build an engaged social media following – something your competitors might not have!…”

Of course this might still be a mystery for some of you as well and South Coast Social would be happy to help.

Prices are set at £250 (plus VAT) for small groups of one to four people. Training as a group means you’re not just getting one person up-to-speed – you’re up-skilling the whole team. After the workshop, anyone with training could jump on and post for the business. It’s also a good way to share the cost with colleagues or friends.

Their social media courses include:

  • LinkedIn 101 – Cultivating new business conversations
  • Mastering Instagram – Elevate your business game on Instagram
  • Social Media Masterclass – The need to knows for YOUR industry
  • Mastering Facebook and Instagram Advertising – Cracking the code!

For more information and to book your workshop, email [email protected] or call 01202 985022.

We look forward to seeing some top quality post in the near future!!
